The new 2010 Triumph Thruxton...
The new 2010 Triumph Thruxton SE harks back to a beginnings of sport biking with a retro design on a modern platform.
Triumph has released a special edition of its café racer-styled Thruxton that offers an even sportier look to the classic British design.
The 2010 Thruxton SE features a stunning powder-coated red frame and Crystal White bodywork with red stripe, color-matched fly screen and blacked out engine cases. The new Crystal White paint contains a high metallic content that results in a luxurious paint finish, and creates a striking contrast to the red frame.
The Triumph Thruxton features modern design and performance combined with a distinctively retro design. The fuel-injected 865cc parallel twin is the most powerful of Triumph’s “Modern Classics” range, delivering 68 horsepower at 7,400 rpm and peak torque of 51 ft/lbs at 5,800 rpm. The engine shares the same 360-degree firing interval as the Bonneville, but also features hotter camshaft profiles, a compression ratio of 9.2:1, and megaphone-style exhaust pipes.
Sporty, low-rise bars, 18-inch spoked wheels, megaphone-style exhaust pipes, and a race-inspired stripe from tank to tail evoke memories of the Ace Café and racing in the streets.
The Thruxton SE will be available at authorized Triumph dealers throughout North America in the spring of 2010. Prices are still to be determined but the SE model will come at a small premium over the standard Thruxton. To find a local authorized Triumph dealer, log onto www.TriumphMotorcycles.com
